The Seattle Sounders are playing tonight for a chance to defend their MLS Cup Championship they won last year.

If the Sounders keep Houston at least 2 goals behind, they win and advance to the MLS Cup for the second year in a row according to news reports.

Their chances look really good considering the last goal that was scored against the Sounders was back in October! They have set a new playoff shutout record of 557 minutes since anyone has scored a goal against them.

The Sounders will be missing their best defensive player for one half because of a suspension which gives Houston hope they can score. History is on the side of the Sounders however since Houston has never won at Centurylink and hasn't scored there since March.

You can watch the game live on ESPN, Go Sounders!
